Figure Painting (Michelle Chrisman)

Saturday & Sunday, March 10 & 11 // 9a-5p

Join artist Michelle Chrisman and quickly learn how to design bold paintings, capturing a simplified light and shadow pattern of the clothed figure and background shapes. Each session with start with small 25 stroke paintings, moving from 5 to 40 minute poses. Concepts of color and value will be explored through the large, bold shapes with thick strokes of paint. Participants will learn to pre-mix correct color values in order to paint quickly with decisive, intentional brush strokes.

On the second day, participants will move to longer poses and larger canvases, still maintaining a contemporary approach. All levels of painter are welcome.
